Adding a Root Site

The Sites menu, located on the Navigation pane, is an important Facilities component as all cable and fiber in the database relates to a Site.  Administrators define the number of Site Levels, and their names, for example, Country, State, County, and City; Division, Brigade, Regiments, and Squadrons etc.  Site levels create a hierarchal relationship within 

There are two different sites that can be added into the database.  The highest or Root site is created first as the broadest level, allowing you to add sites underneath.  The next site type is the child.  This type can be either below a root or below another child.  When two child sites appear at the same level, they are referred to as peers.

Once sites are added, you can add your fiber and connections, buildings to a site and then connections into the building.
